FEATURED ARTISTS

“Guan Yunchang, Paradigm of Loyalty and Righteousness” by Jun Zhengda

Jun Zhengda

China


Jun Zhengda (b.1987) employs thestainless steel casting process. The artist hand-polishes the skin and armor of his characters and other subjects to a mirror-like smoothness, achieving sculpture that possess a colorful visual effect under light and shadow. While pursuing visual impact and styling, Jun’s works also reflect the young Chinese artists who are reshaping the power of art and interpreting traditional Chinese culture in contemporary design language.

 

Jun studied at the Beijing Film Academy. He is currently a member of China Arts and Crafts Association and Landscape Design Senior Engineer. In 2017, he was awarded the title of “2017 Integrity Chinese Craftsman Spirit Model”.


Lee Dong Su

South Korea


Lee Dong Su (b.1965) reconstructs a part of the world; not by reconstructing objects themselves, but by presenting objects as the world. Lee’s works, a simple China and a bowl embodies silence and emptiness, representing winds in a subtle way. Without flamboyant visualization, one could feel the smooth touch of zephyr by looking at his paintings. Like holograms representing the universe, the series of works try to capture the essence of bigger and higher concepts with very oxymoronic crude and simple visualization.

 

The artist is a Master of Fine Arts in Painting from the Painting Department, Graduate School of Fine Arts, Hong-Ik University in Seoul, Korea.


Roger Dean

United Kingdom


Roger Dean (b.1944) is an internationally recognised artist and designer, whose evocative and visionary images with associated graphics, logos, and lettering, created a new genre of work.
